Editor’s Note: The period for beta access has elapsed. Thank you for supporting this experiment.
Float Mobile Learning introduces a new mobile application at DevLearn 2014 called FloatCards.
Building on a strong history of developing custom, powerful and award-winning applications for enterprise learning, Float has released this mobile flashcard game that is quickly deployed and accessed after following a few simple steps before launch.
Float has answered some frequently asked questions below for you to learn whether FloatCards would be a useful mobile learning application for your audiences.
What is FloatCards?
FloatCards is a flashcard quiz mobile application. Users swipe through a series of flashcards and answer multiple choice questions of your content. They earn points based on their success and speed and can post their scores on a leaderboard to see how they stack up against their colleagues.
Why would I use FloatCards for my organization?
FloatCards is fun and easy to use assessment tool.
You can use FloatCards to reinforce your ILT and eLearning.
It’s an effective tool to strengthen your performance support objectives. You can stress the key points of new programs and processes. You could reinforce or introduce product features and benefits. Use it based around a critical company event or a conference. Sales teams, service technicians or your specific target audience can all benefit and learn from FloatCards.
How do I get the application?
FloatCards is going to be released in a beta version very soon. Sign up for access to the beta (iPad only). You will receive an email with instructions on how to load the beta.
Then, when Version 1.0 of FloatCards is released in the Apple App Store, you will be one of the first to know.
When is Version 1.0 going to be available?
We have an expected launch in December 2014.
What devices can I use it on?
FloatCards is currently optimized for the Apple iPad and iOS 7 and newer. Later versions will add device and OS support as customers request.
How do I deliver a launch of FloatCards with my content?
Contact a Float Mobile Learning expert, and they will set up your FloatCards user accounts and content. You will need to supply the email addresses of your users and the questions and answers you want on the flashcards. You can use up to 100 questions.
How long does it take for the launch of my FloatCards?
Once we receive your email addresses, content and payment, your FloatCards content and user access can be ready in just a couple business days.
Why do you need email addresses?
We use the email addresses to make the application safe and secure, and the user experiences specific to your organization. When a user from your email list logs in to FloatCards, they will only see your content. Float will send an email to each user to allow them to set up their username and password. They will use this to log in each time they launch FloatCards. Your employees will not receive marketing information or sales solicitations from Float.
Can I use FloatCards offline?
Not currently. The questions and answers sit outside of the application and are delivered only when the app is open and being used with an internet connection. This is a security measure meant to prevent confidential information from being shared or lost.
Should semi-connected or offline game modes be something you require, talk to a Float team member about getting a custom version of FloatCards created for your organization.
What if I want to see some metrics of how FloatCards is being used by my audience?
Float provides an analytics tool that will show you important usage statistics such as the most frequently missed question, the most popular time of day for usage, and the total time per user.
How much will FloatCards cost?
You can launch one game for one month for $500. That’s for a maximum of 1,000 users.
For 1,001 to 10,000 users, it costs $1,000 to launch one game for one month.
Over 10,000 users, talk to a Float expert for detailed pricing.
But the beta is free, so go ahead and try it out.
